- Launched in America on August 1, 1981, Music Television (MTV) is a network that was originally intended to play music videos. Through the years, the network has expanded not only content (adding reality shows, entertainment news programming, movies, social activism campaigns and award shows to their repertoire), but media in which to imbed itself into the international psyche, including radio, live concerts, Internet, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, numerous mobile applications, newsletters, podcasts and sister channels around the globe. In fact, MTV has channels in over 150 countries. In 2010, in America, MTV averages "558,000 viewers at any given time," with the target age group being "teenagers and twentysomethings." Simply put: "MTV is here to stay, and they know what young people want, because they maintain their youthful, vibrant image of a hip corporation dedicated to bringing only the finest to their audience. Love them or hate them, MTV is the number one gauge and monitor of today’s young generation."
- Yes. It would be fair to say that MTV is one of (if not) the largest of the false religious systems that has the eyes, ears and hearts of the young people of this world. What?! Religious? MTV has nothing to do with religion! Au contraire, my dear friends; MTV has all the components of a false religious system : (1) a wide group of goofy followers that check their brains at the metaphorical door; (2) gods that are elevated above your Creator, the Lord God of Eternity; (3) hellish doctrines/moral rules/worship rituals that are espoused and are contrary to the Word of God. Let’s explore those a bit more, shall we?
The followers are easily drawn in to this religion because MTV makes it all about them. No thought about a true, unchanging standard of God; every person gets to do whatever is right in his/her own eyes. To make it real for their followers, the high priests of MTV grant special access to entertainers, turning them into gods before the eyes of the people and planting in their followers the desire to be like those gods who give the appearance that they live however they want to live – again with the "no standard" allure. Really, these "gods" are the basest of men/women who bask in the lust of the flesh, pride of life, and the lust of other things. Yet, their lifestyles are glorified, magnified and lionized by MTV priestesses. So the followers’ days and minds are filled with how to be like the gods – so the end result is that the followers are the gods and the gods are nothing without the followers.
- "Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes... Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God" (Deut. 12:8 & 28).
On the watch and insistence of MTV’s prophets, celebrities in the entertainment industry have been given a voice to be heard, a presence that is noted and a prestige that cannot be denied. As stated before, each of these stars have their own humble beginnings, compelling life story and skills/talents/resources that they’ve been given by the Lord their God. They have decided that they are going to use what He has given them to serve their selves, their lusts and their own sense of importance. They have special sins that they engage in and a high interest in preserving their life style by enabling their fellow man to engage in all manners of sin against God. And of course, none may enter this elite group of usurpers without being mighty trumpeters of the great lies (see the Doctrine section). Call the role: Robert Pattinson, Angelina Jolie, Heath Ledger, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Katy Perry, Michael Phelps, Brett Farve, Kobe Bryant, Katt Williams, Russell Brand, Ellen Degeneres, Oprah, Bill O’Reilly, to name a few.
- "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations...Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man...Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts...Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen" (Rom. 1:21). "Thou shalt have no other gods before me" (Ex. 20:3).
- DOCTRINES/ MORAL RULES/ WORSHIP RITUALS:
1. Show your support and be as the gods
MTV makes it so easy and appealing for you to spend your time, money, physical/mental energies on becoming like the celebrities they prop up. Ways you are encouraged to show ardor and support for the god of your liking are: picking up their style of dress and diction; buying their albums/DVDs/merchandise; going to their concerts, movies, sports events, award shows; pledging money and mere presence to choice causes/movements; and personally defending your gods on the Net and in social and news media. Those seemingly innocent actions are what you replace simple obedience to God with. "For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens" (1 Chron. 16:26). "In all your dwellingplaces the cities shall be laid waste...and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished" (Eze. 6:6).
- The attractive message that watchers get loud and clear from MTV is simple: the stars who sing our favorite songs, who are on our viral videos, in our clever tweets, on our flashy webpage, on our colored carpets surrounded by a million and a half cameras all got to where they are today by staying true to themselves, embracing their passions and sexuality and putting in some plain hard work. "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jer. 17:9).
- Are you cranky? Over worked? Under paid? Need to wind down? There’s a classic MTV solution to many problems in life: just get laid! In fact, if you’re not chasing sex from the time you’re fourteen, you’re regarded as a border-line freak/nerd monster. "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body" (1 Cor. 6:18). If you don’t have anything nasty to say, don’t say anything at all (aka shut your prudish mouth) and likewise, If you’re not baring your boobs or your butt to the civilized world, you need to go check into this century. Don’t try to deny it, MTV. The people who are over-the-top filthy in their lyrics, everyday slang and who wear shockingly revealing clothing are the people who get the most attention and praise. And you unleash your wise (ass) prophets with their righteous indignation if someone on the landscape happens to raise a word of objection (for instance, when Katy Perry’s skit on Sesame Street wasn’t aired because her cleavage was too prominent for pre-schoolers). MTV gushes tolerance and commendations for all manner of filth and foul and sins against God; it’s when a little truth is preached that the gloves come off. Which brings us to our last main doctrines espoused by MTV. "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers" (Eph. 4:29).
- Classic example -- see these articles: Lady Gaga Fans Counteract Westboro Protesters In St. Louis; Twitter Report, Westboro Baptist Comic-Con ProtestsWhen you deliberately write your articles to include a full description of and commentary by one of the subjects in your story, while you say as little as possible about the other subject, thereby hiding certain truths and showing your hatred for that subject - that is NOT what we like to call objective journalism. And if it’s the church of the Lord Jesus Christ that you’re subjecting to this treatment, that’s what we like to call misusing God’s prophets. God hates you for that. We come with the way, the truth, and life – and your sycophants that you’ve indoctrinated your filth with come out with their (and your) base, humanly hatred. You hide the truth of God from your followers, MTV, and fill their head with so much nonsense and perversion. Then you want to pretend as if there is NO rational basis for our traveling Love Crusades (Hello?! God said love=rebuking your neighbor when they sin and hate=encouraging your neighbors in their sins [Lev 19:17-18]). "But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy" (2 Chron. 36:16). "Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour" (Jer. 23:30).
- The "journalist" here is a bit more honest about showing her hatred for the plain commandments and judgments of God. Calling us animals because we say you must REPENT and OBEY if you want the blessings of God. Shame.
- In closing, MTV: And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. (Rev. 18:23).
